Baker City, Oregon
Patricia Ellen Hesseltine, 48, a former Baker City resident, died March 14, 2004, at her home in Albany.
A memorial service will be held Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Fisher Funeral Home, Third and Washington streets in Albany.
Patricia was born Feb. 2, 1956, at Prairie City to Samuel and Juanita A. (Crane) Bunch.
She moved to Baker City as a child where she grew up and met her one and only love, Larry Hesseltine Sr.
They married July 1, 1972 at Caldwell, Idaho, and moved to Albany in 1983.
She was a caregiver and homemaker for 33 years.
Her true joy in life was her family and friends. She was a mom more than an aunt to all of her nieces and nephews, their friends and anyone else who happened to become a part of her life. The greatest joy was her four grandchildren.
As a grandmother, she was active in the Waverly PTA, along with every extracurricular activity that they participated in.
She is survived by her husband, Larry Hesseltine Sr. of Albany; sons, Samuel Hesseltine of Albany and Larry Hesseltine Jr. of Shedd; brothers, Herbert Bunch of Baker City and Samuel Bunch Jr. of Albany; sisters, Glenda Lambert of Florence and Verna Sue Boone of Albany; four grandchildren, John, Alex, Michelle and Alicia; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Billy Jerome Bunch.
